I'm paying your invoice under duresse.
Before I had any problems all my electric points functioned. Then a fuse blew rendering them useless. I contacted you.
Simple et rapid?
To date:
1.10/01/2020
For an emergency call-out your price went up by 20 when I checked out
2. Finally your electician arrived 2 hours late and it was dark
3. Next day I still had problems and after several days, I contacted you and again on the 15/01/2020
4. On (17/01/2012), your answer was I did not return his call, I did, so you are also untruthful.
5. He finally rang me on Monday last and made an appointment for Wednesday, he did not arrive?

Happy New Year.

Tip for consumers: just beware! find another

Brain Damage
Like some others I entered in to a pension scheme with windsor life in the early 90s eventually after a stream of takeovers now Reassure.
However since around 7 months ago the client service is run by morons. Possibly some re-organisation. It takes weeks sometimes months to receive a reply after phoning which in itself is like the 3rd degree, lots of deerie's & darlings but no common sense.
Even after receiving a letter of apology from a manager? When I phoned to talk to him I was passed from 3 departments no-one knowing him!
My advice steer clear if you like customer sensible service. Meantime anyone knowing na efficient pension company please let me know.

Tip for consumers: it's a pensions company

Actually 1 star is too much.
Sleezy charlatans, I bought a TV advertised at 349 on ebay with a voucher code. The voucher didn't work and I received 2 invoices on PayPal for 399.
When I finally got a reply after 3 days they said they had refunded, & could not find the order, not true.
I sent all PayPal proof but I'm still waiting for a 2nd response, I also tried phoning but just a recorded message to wait & wait & wait yawn yawn.
USELESS go elswhere.

I live in France. I have asked for a refund.
I originally found your USA www, they sent me to UK www, I also enquired about France on your help line, a Philipines lady in your call center sent me to www.fr, I got adverts for other 0pticians not you!
So I bought a pair on your UK www although more expensive because my bank account is here in FRance so I pay for the exchange rate.
What a way to run a railway?
Finally I received a message to say I would receive a receipt in a few hours, NOTHING AND WHEN I EMAILED YOU ABOUT IT, ALSO NOTHING. I even sent my PayPal invoice you issued.
The only reply you sent was to say you are closing my ticket?
Are you in China or Hong Kong, never did find out?

Well done

OK so I bought a Rolex from Sammleruhren Atelier, dr. Peter Rozsondai
Street: Sittarderstr. 24 a
ZIP code: 52538
City: Selfkant-Tüddern
Country: Germany Germany for 950. Advert said original Rolex with original box and an invoice.
It arrived wrapped in newspaper, great for a 1000 euro watch, no invoice or original box?!
I checked time keeping=+ 10 minutes a day
I checked the movement= not Rolex
I contacted Chrono24, after 3 days someone responded saying I must pay return postage for a box of rubbish.
I see Chrono24 has good reviews, I am at a loss to know how, they are scammers allowing anything to be sold good or rubbish.
After all above I decided to cancel my account but not possible, then I tried to cancel my adverts also not possible.

OK, j'ai acheté une Rolex de Sammleruhren Atelier, dr. Peter Rozsondai
Rue: Sittarderstr. 24 a
Code postal: 52538
Ville: Selfkant-Tüddern
Pays: Allemagne Allemagne pour 950. Annonce publicitaire Rolex originale avec boîte d'origine et facture.
Il est arrivé emballé dans du papier journal, idéal pour une montre à 1000 euros, sans facture ni boîte d'origine?!
J'ai vérifié le chronométrage = + 10 minutes par jour
J'ai vérifié le mouvement = pas Rolex
J'ai contacté Chrono24. Après 3 jours, quelqu'un a répondu en disant que je devais payer les frais de retour pour une boîte de déchets.
Je vois que Chrono24 a de bonnes critiques, je ne sais pas comment, ce sont des escrocs qui permettent de vendre n'importe quoi, que ce soit de la marchandise ou de la foutaise.
Après tout, j'ai décidé d'annuler mon compte, mais c'est impossible, puis j'ai essayé d'annuler mes annonces, ce qui n'était pas possible.

Why are you not contactable by email?
Why has your www so many technical problems?
I did what you said, canceled my account on your website and you refunded 5 for my Sim card but you now continue taking a monthly contract amount from my Visa card.
Would you explain how you cancelled my account but continue taking my money even after twice asking to stop Visa payments?
Your company is dis-honest, not to be trusted.
I am only able to contact you direct via Trustpilot.
Your company and the www are useless.
Pourquoi votre www autant de problèmes techniques?
J'ai fait ce que vous aviez dit, j'ai annulé mon compte sur votre site Web et vous avez remboursé 5 pour ma carte Sim, mais vous continuez à prendre un montant de contrat mensuel avec ma carte Visa.
Souhaitez-vous expliquer comment vous avez annulé mon compte et continuer à prendre mon argent même après avoir demandé à deux reprises d'interrompre les paiements Visa?
Votre entreprise est malhonnête et ne fait pas confiance.
Je ne peux vous contacter directement via Trustpilot.
Votre entreprise et le www sont inutiles.
Cheap and nasty

I took out a 2 year plan recently. If I could give no stars it would be more appropriate.
Since then the software has never functioned correctly. In the beginning it was small things like auto login not working, also not being able to login to Amazon, Ebay, PayPal, my bank & any UK TV channels without receiving an email or phone call to verify my login 1st.

However over time it got to me being unable to use it at all on either W7 or W8.1 or W10, so for over a week I had no service even after them 'Screensharing' for 2 hours uploading various rubbish that didn't make a difference.

I asked for a refund of my remaining subscription without a reply but when I asked for the Directors name eh voila, immediate refund?

So they took over from RobSat tv a few weeks ago. I had already paid them for 1 year so called GOLD Membership.
Then started OK for a week after progressively worse 'till today unable to login at all.
Before today all other sorts of problems...
Video files not found
No SD BBC1
No SD BBC2
No HD BBC1
No HD BBC2
+ many others too numerous to say.
They also never respond to any emails,
They put up on the www that it's being hacked etc etc.
This company is 100% scam.

Since January have been in contact to renew my house insurance but they did not give me bank transfer details.
Then I have a recorded delivery letter demanding an extra 15 due to late payment!

Not a bad product, after a while of using it's sometimes uncomfortable.
It works, but a bit small for me. Ideally I'd like it twice as long/wide, otherwise good.

Works well

My second gigaset, it works well except you can't bar incoming nuisance calls.
I could do that with my older model?

CoolFire IV TC
Cost nearly 70 euros on Amazon.
Worked OK for a month then started leaking, I changed the washers & tank, bought a new 1.
That lasted for less time before leaking badly then to cap it all the temperature dissapeared altogether.
I contacted Innokin via email twice, never received a reply!
I'm waiting a reply to refund cash from Amazon.

I tried shirts 5xl Chinese = xl europe, I ordered 2 1 fits ok other is a medium.
Then Avoid Mens Empire
I ordered a jacket 5xl it was again like medium & what's more the lining was torn & not machined in places. I demanded a refund but to send it back was more than I paid for the item, absolute waste of space.
However I have bought 2 mini i7 pc's that are running well & have had great customer contact with the seller.

So not good news as usual with Linux!
1. I checked your flash drive for errors after it loaded with the screen menu, 7 found but no way to identify. Don't you check for errors before shipping?
2. I decided to install it onto a new SSD anyway, after installed & restart I got a screen filled with rubbish writing but could see 'Unable to mount root unknown block (2)' at the bottom
3. Obviously no way to power off apart from mains.
4. restarted & it appeared to boot correctly but when I tried to CHECK software drivers installed it would not accept my password saying either 'incorrect password or failed to run mint install as user root.
I am not a programmer nor wish to spend any more hours with these problems so I guess a refund is in order?
OK since above & I sent yu 2 emails I'm stll waiting a reply over a week later?

Rapport qualité / prix: Mr Bricolage MTD92 Autoportee mon numéro de commande MB2009275 1 623,95

Mais vendu livré par le-jardin-de-catherine.com Prix 1499
J'ai payé Mr Bricolage Plus 125!

Absolue malhonnêteté!
